What is "hot" is getting an education. Spend more time reading a book, you have your whole life to give and/or get hickeys!

The best way to remove a hickey is to throw yourself under the wheels of an oncoming train.

A hickey is a bruise under the skin. Easy to get, hard to get rid of. Here are some facts that may help. I suggest stop giving and receiving hickeys. It's only advertising your business.

Apply an icepack to the hickey as soon as possible after receiving it. You can wrap some ice in a towel, use pre-frozen ice packs or put a spoon in the freezer for a few minutes. Gently hold the cold compress to the skin for several minutes (up to 20 minutes, if it doesnít feel too uncomfortable), remove the compress for several minutes, and then apply it again.

Try the toothbrush or comb method. Many people swear by it, but itís important to remember that a hickey is a bruise, and they just take time to disappear, so donít expect a miracle.
Lightly brush the hickey and the area around it with a stiff-bristled toothbrush or a comb. Doing this breaks up the blood clot and gets circulation going again.
Wait about 15 minutes. The redness and swelling will spread, but will be less obvious after about 15 minutes.

Apply a cold compress, as above.
Repeat if necessary. Depending on the magnitude of your hickey, this method may work or it may just spread the discoloration a bit (pressing too hard can make it worse.)

Conceal the hickey with makeup. The most effective is green-tinted concealer, as it's designed to negate red skin tones. Apply a foundation (one a little lighter than your skin tone) directly on and all around the hickey so it's not obvious youíre concealing something. Try an eyeshadow thatís lighter than your skin tone if sans concealer.

Cover the hickey. Wear a turtleneck, scarf or collared shirt or blouse (dress appropriate for the weather!). Style your hair (if it's long enough) so it hangs over the hickey. Frequently check the positioning of the covering agent, ensuring it still hides the hickey.

Use a coin. This method is probably the most painful, but has proven VERY effective. First, stretch the skin flat (pulling away from the hickey on two opposite sides). Then, use the edge of a large coin to scrape the skin. Use the coin like the hickey was butter on toast, and spread outward. The only difference is that you must press quite HARD (as hard as you can, but not so that you break the skin, bleed or hurt). What this does is push the excess blood, which has escaped from the capillaries, out of the surface skin. There will be redness from the scraping, but that will go away much faster than a hickey. Anyhow, a scrape is much less conspicuous than a hickey.

Put a spoon in the freezer for a few minutes. Apply pressure and slide the spoon along the hickey. The pressure and coldness help disperse the blood that has formed. You will need to repeat freezing as a warm spoon is useless. You must use a lot of pressure with the spoon but should see results over a few minutes of doing this.

Long Term Solutions: Part 2

Apply arnica salve. Arnica is an herbal salve that helps reduce swelling and can minimize the appearance of a hickey.(Some people claim Witch Hazel will shorten hickey healing time.)
Eat healthy foods. A healthy diet can help any bruise heal more quickly.
Increase your intake of vitamin P (also called bioflavonoids). Examples of foods that contain significant amounts of bioflavonoids: lemons, green peppers, broccoli, and rose hips. The primary job of bioflavonoids is to protect the capillaries, keep them strong and prevent them from bleeding. The converse of this equals a hickey.
Use Vitamin K cream (aloe vera and vitamin E don't hurt either). Vitamin K helps reabsorb the blood stuck near the surface of the skin that causes the appearance of a hickey (more specifically the redness or brownness).
Also increase your intake of vitamin K by eating green leafy vegetables, such as spinach, green cabbage, kale, Swiss chard, turnip greens, broccoli, tomatoes as well as exceptional meats like liver.
Apply heat to a hickey that lasts more than a couple days. Saturate a washcloth in hot water, wring it out, and hold it to your skin for several minutes. Reheat the washcloth with more water as necessary.

Activities for the young and restless. Hickey free (no hickeys)

Part 1
Nursing Home Ministry
People in nursing homes tend to be lonely and disconnected from the world. You can contact various nursing homes in your area to see what types of activities you can do with the residents there. You can get your group together to read stories, write letters, just talk, put on skits, and more.

You donít have to be a genius to help out young kids with their homework. Some kids just donít get the attention or help they need. You can contact social services in your area to see what they are doing in certain neighborhoods for kids. Work with the neighborhood centers to set up tutoring in low-income neighborhoods.

Reading Program
Little kids love when people read to them. Pre-schoolers will crawl in your lap and just eat it up. It also helps to promote literacy. Check with local pre-schools, neighborhood centers, and libraries to see if there is a time your youth group can come in to read to the children. Your group can read both Christian and Non-Christian books and act out skits to entertain the kids.

3. Movie Marathon
Got a list of movies that you are just dying to see? Have some friends over and watch them one after another. Whether you want to watch the Lord of the Rings movies back to back or all the chick-flicks that make you cry, a movie marathon can be a fun time together.
4. Read a Book
If you are a reader, Spring Break and Summer Vacations are great times to catch up on your non-school reading. You have the free time to immerse yourself in your favorite authors' books. Head to the library or the bookstore to pick one up.

Safe activities for teens and their dates.

Roller skating
Ice skating
Miniature golf
Amusement parks
Water parks
Getting ice cream together

Activities for the young and restless. Hickey free (no hickeys)

Part 2

Day trips - Pick a place an hour or two away and make a day of it. The place might be another city, a historic site, a mountain trail or a nice beach. Be sure you get home on time.

Shopping together - Let's say you are looking for a gift for someone like your mother or father. Take your date along with you to the mall and look for the gift together.

Picnic - Plan a picnic at a local park or natural area. Invite some friends along if you want a little less intimacy.

Ball game - Get a group together and go to a professional baseball/football/hockey/baske tball game. Eat lunch or dinner at the game. This can be a little expensive if you aren't careful, so plan ahead. Or try going to a minor league game rather than a big league game. Not only is it cheaper, but you can get a lot closer to the players and the field.

Star gazing - Get a book on constellations (or invite a friend with a telescope) and watch the stars. This can be especially fun during a meteor shower.

Do something neither of you have done before - find an activity neither of you have tried but that you have both thought would be interesting. Figuring out the thing to do that you have in common can be as much fun as the thing itself.

Walk on the beach - If you live near the ocean or a large lake, take a walk on the beach or the shoreline. It can be contemplative and peaceful.

Visit a park. You can swing together or ride down the slide. If you go in the evening it will be less crowded.

Cheer on a mutual friend - If the two of you have a mutual friend who is playing in a game or a concert at school, attend the performance together to cheer your friend on.

Go to church together - If you are both religious, take your date to your church and then go to your date's church the next week.

Go to a club event - If one of you is in a club, the other can tag along to see what it is like, make new friends and participate in club activities.

Try something spontaneous - Pick a nearby town neither of you have been to before and go explore it to see what you find.

Place a bunch of restaurant names in a hat and pick one. Spontaneous dates are probably not good for the first date, but can be fun if you have been going out for awhile.

Poetry reading, book reading - lots of time local authors will have poetry or book-reading sessions at local bookstores. If you like that sort of thing find one in your area.

Boat ride - Lots of municipal lakes have boat rentals (canoes, paddle boats, fishing boats, sail boats). Take a picnic lunch, rent a boat and and absorb nature.

Take photographs together - Get a couple of disposable cameras and go some place to take pictures. Then once the pictures are developed compare how different they are!

Look up special events in the paper - The Saturday or Sunday paper in your area will have a list of special events for the weekend. You can find some really interesting things to try that way.

Have a dance - Usually you think of "going to the dance" at School, but what about having your own dance? Get a group of friends together, pick the music and dance. Keep in mind maturity is always a good way to impress. No alcohol or drugs invited!!

Get a guide book for your city - Go to the library or a bookstore and get a tour book for your city. You will be amazed at all the attractions that are hidden nearby. A guide book may also contain self-guided walking tours that are fun.

Purchase a guide book for a nearby city and make a day trip there.

Berry picking - In the spring or summer go strawberry/blueberry/blackberr y. Strawberry season is in May. Ashland Berry Farm and Chesterfield Berry Farm may be of interest.

Apple picking in the fall is another option.

Flea market - Go explore a local flea market one Saturday.

Parents should take accountability of their children's actions. The young will become restless if not engaged.

Become proactive in your children's life. Be aware of who they are dating,. Talk to them concerning safe sex, know where they are and who their friends are.

Place parental controls on computers and televisons,it may spare you grief in the future.

Becoming proactive in your children's life costs nothing but time and interest.

Do not wait until your child becomes a teen before you decide to set boundaries. Structure is very important and is a part of early intervention.

Create inexpensive activities for your children.

Remember....if you allow your children to raise themselves,the streets will become proactive in their lives.

Although rare ,a hicky can cause a blot clot, which is why they can be dangerous.

The reason that the word "Rare" is used,is because it CAN happen and Has happen.

Be safe !!!

Do not engage in the type of behavior that creates hickeys is the best answer.

Oh please. They disappear in a few days, one week at most. You talk about it like it's an STD. My girlfriend gives me several and I give her several and we display them proudly. You must be religious freaks, prudes, and haters.
